It’s hog time on Wednesday April 24th at the Isis Restaurant and Music Hall at 743 Haywood Road. Slow Food Asheville will be presenting an evening of film followed by live music. You will get to know some local farmers, including Allan Benton of Benton’s Bacon, in “Preserve,” a film by Blind Pig. Then follow the process of butchering a hog from start to finish in Susannah Patty’s film, “Community of a Hog.” The programming wraps up with a short film chronicling local food organization FEAST (Fresh, Easy, Affordable, Sustainable and Tasty), including the program’s history and stories from its free cooking classes for children.  The local hands on group provides cooking experience using fresh seasonal local ingredients with a focus on childhood and family nutrition. After the hour of film there will be plenty of time to dine, discuss, and groove with your new food-minded friends. The first screening will begin at 6:30 pm but please plan to arrive at 6:00.
